    Arnold Palmer seemed to me a very charming man and a class act. May he rest in peace.

    RIP Arnold, very sad to hear this. An absolute great of the game and a gentleman. Although he was at his best long before I was born, I was impressed to read that he was still playing well into his seventies.

    When I was much younger I used to enjoy playing my Dad's golf game on the computer. I tried to play against Arnold, under the mistaken impression that he was just some random guy (rather than the one of the greatest players of all time, and a formidable opponent). He kept beating me and I got so annoyed that I deleted him from the game! I now look back on that with a mix of amusement and shame - as far as bad sportsmanship is concerned, deleting an opponent takes thing onto a new level.

    In more recent, mellower times where anyone with the temerity to beat me does not live in fear of being deleted, the Bay Hill Club & Lodge (home of the annual Arnold Palmer Invitational) has become one of my favourites to play on the PlayStation.

    RIP Arnold Palmer. Such a great golfer and I love the drink he invented (half lemonade and half iced tea). Such a sad day yesterday in the sports world with both Arnold and baseball player Jose Fernandez passing away.
